Pushing Node.js to Azure While You Make Your Coffee

Many of us enjoy our coffee in the morning ... or late afternoon ... or whenever we can get a dose of "wake me up". It takes just a few minutes. But those are also precious minutes away from the keyboard where I feel most productive. Often I run a process when I go to make my coffee, but so many take so long that it is nice when I can get something done in just a few seconds or minutes. I've been using this relatively new command for Azure called az webapp up. It pushes my node.js apps up to Azure without asking me a ton of questions. Run it in a folder and give it a name and boom!...

Vue.js with TypeScript

I spent a few days on and off learning parts of Vue to write a small app. I wrote the same app with Angular. I'm sharing my experience of working through Vue for the first time to help others that may be curious about the JavaScript framework landscape. This post explores how I refactored the Vue app to use TypeScript. The two places I found the most help were in this (Microsoft resource](https://github.com/microsoft/typescript-vue-starter) and the Vue docs. Neither was exactly what I needed, but together they were helpful in gaining success. Read on to learn more. Disclaimer: This was my first attempt at using TypeScript in Vue. My intent is to share the journey, not...


A Look at Angular Alongside Vue - Familiar Code

I spent a few days on and off learning parts of Vue to write a small app. I wrote the same app with Angular. I'm sharing my experience of working through Vue for the first time to help others that may be curious about the JavaScript framework landscape. This post explores the code for both the Angular and Vue apps. Spoiler: you'll find that the code and concepts are very similar. :) I had a lot of fun working through Vue with Sarah Drasner. Pair programming or simply just talking to friends about code is a great way to learn and share ideas. We all benefit when we learn to enjoy and embrace the similarities and the differences that help push...


A Look at Angular Alongside Vue - Learning Materials

I spent a few days on and off learning parts of Vue to write a small app. I wrote the same app with Angular.
